Curious how you think Kong falls short of Nginx. Isn't it built on top of Nginx via Openresty/ngx_lua?

Marco, CTO of Kong here. Kong is not only built on top of Nginx, but also extends it significantly to provide features that Nginx doesn’t do out of the box (dynamic configuration, SRV records resolution, dynamic Plugin based system, data plane API and so on).

Ah, yes. I was generalizing API gateway load balancing, which doesn't make sense for Kong.
